Goodwin totaled 20 points (7-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 6-10 FT), seven rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block across 29 minutes during a 112-73 loss to the Bulls on Wednesday.
Goodwin's 20 points off the bench marked a season high and a team high as the team held out several players. He was able to have his best game of the season in the finale, as the seven boards, four dimes, 29 minutes received and 11 field goal attempts were all season highs well.
With Goodwin's second 10-day deal with the Nets set to expire Monday, the team decided that they had seen enough from the 22-year-old to make a longer-term commitment. He's averaged 6.6 points and 1.9 assists while shooting 57.1 percent from the field in his seven appearances for the Nets, and will give the team another intriguing asset to develop with the team forfeiting its lottery pick this summer. Goodwin's contract will include guarantee dates for next season, so it's not necessarily a lock that he'll remain with the Nets for all of 2017-18.
Goodwin's initial pact is due to expire after Friday's game against the Wizards, but the 22-year-old has shown the Nets enough over his week and a half with the team to warrant another deal. Despite seeing only 13.3 minutes per game over three appearances, Goodwin is filling the stat sheet with marks of 8.7 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.7 assists, while shooting 58.8 percent from the field. The 22-year-old's talent has never been in question, and if he can display more consistent shooting over the second 10-day deal, he could be signed through the remainder of the season.
Goodwin collected 12 points (4-4 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds and three assists across eight minutes during Thursday's 126-98 victory over the Suns.
Goodwin has made the most of the 10-day contract he and the Nets agreed upon March 15, averaging 8.7 points on 57.1 percent shooting, 3.3 rebounds and 2.7 assists across 13.3 minutes per game. The 22-year-old guard out of Kentucky isn't afraid to shoot the ball, as he averaged 17.0 points across 32.7 minutes per game in the D-League this season, and is averaging 21.1 points per 36 minutes in the six NBA appearances he's made on the year. Though he's relatively far down on the Nets' depth chart, Brooklyn boasts the worst record in the NBA and has been playing a myriad of players throughout the whole season, opening up plenty of opportunity for Goodwin to make his mark. If he ends up signing a contract for the rest of the season however, he'll likely be only fantasy relevant in the deepest of leagues.
Goodwin and the Nets agreed to a 10-day contract Wednesday, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.
Since being waived by the Pelicans back on Nov. 20 following three appearances with the team, Goodwin has plied his trade in the D-League, where he's averaged 17.0 points (on 43.8% shooting from the field), 5.2 rebounds, and 2.3 assists across 32.7 minutes per game for the D-League's Greensboro Swarm. The Nets saw enough from the 22-year-old to give him a short-term trial with the team, but it's not likely that he'll be a major factor in coach Kenny Atkinson's rotation.
